Srinagar, Feb 21 (KNO): As the weather conditions have started to improve in the Valley, the Kashmir Power Distribution Corporation Limited (KPDCL) has decided to announce revised electricity schedules in the Valley after March 01.
Talking to the news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO), Chief Engineer, Aijaz Ahmad Dar, said that there is no change in the power schedule as of now.
However, he said that the revised schedule will be announced after March 01.
Pertinently, the power department issues a curtailment schedule during winters as the electricity demand goes high due to the bone-chilling cold.
Unlike previous years, the 40-day harshest period, chila-i-kalan, didn’t witness any major snowfall this year.
Notably, a local weatherman here has predicted rain as well as snowfall on February 22-23.
Sources within the KPDCL said that the demand of power during the day has decreased manifold due to rise in temperature.
However, they said that the demand increases in the morning and evening hours only in the last couple of days—(KNO)
